It's Toddler Time!

Thursday mornings, 10:30 am, at the Baldwin Boettcher Branch Library, in the Study/Meeting room you will find our adventurous Ms Nancy and her group of toddlers.  This high energy group loves to sing, mimic finger plays, dance, and listen to books.  Sometimes the wheels on the bus may change subjects according the topic of Ms Nancy's story time.  A cow bell may clang, the tail may swish, the eyes go blink and finally the voice of the cow says moo.  The familiar tune with different words allows the children to pick up the words to add to their vocabulary at a faster pace.  Please come join us and enjoy story time while picking up tips on early literacy from Ms Nancy.

Now that tax season is over and we can all relax...

If you haven't caught on to this craze yet, tune in to Cartoon Network at around 9PM every night of the week. Here's the schedule site: Adult Swim Schedule. Kids, ask your parents.
